As the Philadelphia Business Journal hosted their 2017 “40 Under 40” awards on May 11, it was a truly special moment for JLL; out of 400 accomplished nominees that PBJ considered this year, our own Susan Lowry stood center stage to be honored.
As Vice President, Marketing Director for JLL’s Philadelphia & Great Lakes Markets, Susan’s leadership is backed by years of impressive professional and philanthropic experience and an overall exemplary career. A testament to her ambition, Susan has led her team to awards such as JLL’s Americas Marketing Leadership and Excellence Award in 2015 for Excellence in Business Development and has helped the marketing department evolve into a strategic business partner contributing to overall the growth of the Philadelphia Market.
But her drive is not just limited to the office. From volunteering with ACHIEVEability to holding Board positions with National Adoption Center and Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC), Susan extends her passion and determination to benefit not just JLL but our community.
